The Intruders First Draft: Done.

You guys have no idea how long I’ve been waiting to tell you this.

Just twenty minutes ago, I typed the final words of The Intruders. This is one of the greatest moments of my life. I’ve been working on this novel since last August, and the current draft since November. There’s been a lot of bumps in the road, but I’ve finally reached the end. It it’s so freaking satisfying.

The word count? 50,500 (I’m not lying. It landed on exactly that many words.)

Yes, it’s kinda short. But I told the story that I wanted to be told, and I’m not going to add a bunch more words for words sake. I’m going to go through and editing it, so the word count should grow larger, but not by much. The sequels are going to be longer, though. Especially book three, which I’ve actually foreshadowed events that take place in book three, in The Intruders.

Anyways, just thought I’d let you guys know! I’m hoping to have it to my editor by Friday, and to my beta readers sometime next week. So, the book should be out by the end of March, but most likely the very beginning of April. I’ll have a solid date soon.

The Intruders Cover Reveal!

I’m revealing the cover for The Intruders today! Originally, I was going to have a professional do the cover. Then, I added everything up, and I was going to end up having to choose between hiring an editor, or a cover artist. So, of course, I chose to have and editor. So today, I’ve been messing around with different covers, and this one is my favorite. It looks professional, and it’s the best I’ve ever done. I’m really proud of it.

Anyways, enough of my blabbing. Here’s the cover!

So tell me, what do you think about it? As I said earlier, I love it. I’m going to finish the book by next Friday, so after that, all that’s left is editing, sending it to the betas (if you want to be a beta, just email me), and then it’s publishing time! It’ll be out by the beginning of April.

That’s all I got! Cheers!

The Intruders (Visitors Trilogy, #1)

Today, I am announcing my upcoming novel, The Intruders (Visitors Trilogy, #1). You may know this novel by it’s former name, The Arrival. I have changed the name, though, and I like this one much better.

For those of you who don’t know, this is what the book is about:

It started with the mysterious Visitors, who appeared over The White House in their spaceship. Days go by with seemingly no contact, until one day, they leave. Moments later, almost everybody on Earth disappears into thin air.

Seventeen-year-old Charlie Freeman and his cousin, Alex, are two of the few left behind. While fighting for survival, they join a girl named Sarah in her quest to Washington D.C. to rescue her little brother. It should be easy, but then these mysterious creatures known as Grimm’s start showing up, and they have one goal: to kill all those who were left behind.

So yeah! That’s The Intruders! I’m hoping to reveal the cover art for it by the end of the month, so keep an eye out for that. Also, if you want to be a beta reader for The Intruders, just email me at authorloganrutherford@gmail.com and let me know. If you don’t know what a beta reader is, here’s the Cliff Notes. I send you the novel after it’s been edited, and before it’s released. You read it, tell me what you thought, point out any plot holes/typos (it’ll be after it has been professionally edited, so there shouldn’t be many), and things like that. I fix ’em, and then publish the book!

That’s all that I’ve got for you. Oh, almost forgot, the book should be out sometime next month. It’ll be either the beginning, middle, or end of the month. ;P
